LecturerMathematics and Statistics


I received a Master of Science degree in pure mathematics from the University of Kerala, India in 1984 and a Master of Science degree from the University of Houston,

Houston, TX, USA, in pure mathematics, in 1991. I passed my preliminary exam for the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics twice at the University of Houston Math dept. Scienceser got to finish the dissertation yet. While pursuing my degree at UH, I also worked as a teaching fellow there. My responsibility included teaching two classed per semester. I started working as a full-time lecturer at the Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Houston-Downtown since and Fall semester of 1996 till present. I am looking forward to finishing my Ph.D. degree in the near future.
